2020 SIMULATED EMERGENCY TEST (SET)

The 2020 SET will take place Saturday October 24, from 9am.

We will be using the CAARC Call Out List to activate ARES members in advance of the ARES Net being activated at 9am.

The scenario, per RAC request, is a winter storm, and will be run as a virtual exercise and follow all Provincial and Municipal Covid-19 guidelines .

We are teaming up with ARES groups in Calgary and Edmonton, and planning to operate on VHF and 80m.

Hoping you will be able to check in to the net, and take part if you’re able.

ARES Net Control Schedule

ARES Net Control Volunteers

Firstly, I acknowledge the contribution made by Greg VA6GMC as ARES Net Control; thank you Greg.

ARES Red Deer is seeking volunteers to take on Net Control duties for the Sunday evening ARES Net. If you’re new to ARES, this is a good opportunity to learn or improve your net control and traffic handling skills.

There is a script to follow, and, in general, the Net doesn’t take more than 15 to 20 minutes. If you are able to commit to operating Net Control once every five weeks, I’d like to here from you.

Once there is at least five volunteers, a schedule will be drawn up with volunteers operating in rotation.

If you’re interested and would like to know more drop me a line at stephen dot lee@shaw dot ca, or give me a call at four zero three-three zero seven-1643.

If you’re already an ARES member that’s awesome, it not, why not sign up; just ask for details.
